Hi, I'm new to the forum. I'm a keen biker myself, and was wondering if you guys could be kind enough to fill out a questionnaire I am conducting on behalf of a project I'm doing at University, regarding the British Motorcycle Industry. 

The purpose of the survey is to gain feedback in regards to a Research project into the elements influencing the demise of the British Motorcycle industry; and how the development of international brands impacted the UK industry. Your responses are key in my investigation, as it will help me plan proposals to the research.

Thanks a lot, most appreciated...  Wink  

I've exceeded the character limit of 4000. Hmm, only 3000 here though. Ah well... I'll add another post.

  1. Does a Honda Deauville count as a motorcycle?
  2. Sqrt (-1)
  3. I wish I owned one of the major motorcycle manufacturers, since then I would be bleeding rich.
  4. The State of Iowa issued me titles.
  5. I bought my motorcycles with US dollars, not British pounds.
  6. Both is quite tricky, eh?
  7. No. Too hard to get a motorcycle through an Ethernet cable for online purchasing to work.
  8. Who said I did?
  9. Hermaphrodite.
  10. 0-4 years.

1- YES
2- 7
3- Suzuki
4- I only do trackdays now so a sportsbike is essential and the Suzuki was my road bike before I stopped riding the roads
5- £4000-£5900
6- Second.. You lose too much money buying brand new.. Better deals are used bikes with very low mileage.
7- I never have so far but I would if I found the right bike there.
8- Online
9- Male
10- 40-45 

Seems to me the demise wasa bought around by racing.. Namely the TT. Back in the day there were many UK manufacturers and the TT was where they came to show their stuff, for years Matchless and Norton and Triumph and many other Brit builders competed against each other infront of the world's eyes and then along came the Italians followed by the japs and they wiped the floor with us.. and still do.

We just don't build enough good bikes anymore, simple!

Ok ...

1. yes

2. 5

3. Suzuki

4. Because It is the third of these I have owned and over the past 9 years I have grown to love this particular model of bike. I'm a 'faithful kinda chap'... and I'm still 'in love'.

5. 10,000+

6. New

Why wouldn't you rather have a spanking brand new machine that hasn't been thrashed by someone else? .....  (Money obviously, but if I can afford new I will always be willing to pay extra for it, I had plenty of second hand bikes when I was younger and bringing up a family).

7. No, I'd rather deal face to face with a real person when it comes to buying a bike. But I will check out prices on line before going to a dealers.

8. Online

9. Male

10. 56
